Yesterday, we noted that HB 1284, which set medical marijuana regs, requires the state to ask the DEA to designate pot as a Schedule II controlled substance. Plenty of commentary followed, including the following post, whose author doesn't expect Department of Revenue executive director Barbara Brohl to press the argument for long.

Colorado Mmj Patient writes:

It will go like this:

Brohl: Yeah, hey DEA, this is Colorado. You know about this whole marijuana thing, are you guys cool with it yet?


Brohl: Ok, have a nice day. See you soon!
